Content is king and also a power to everyone who wants to make money from online business. Writing and publishing articles has become one of the ways of getting targeted visitors to your online stores and this is the pure trick I have been using to make money selling various items.
There are certain steps you need to follow to achieve your goals and this includes the following
- Article Topic: You need to write an article on a hot topic that people will love to read and even come back to download. Getting topics can be easily done through visiting online forum for latest and hot discussions. Apart from online forums, you can still go ahead to social network sites such as Facebook, Twitter and auction sites like eBay. Based on my past experience I have found eBay as the most successful website where you can get hot topics to write on.
- Write Your Article: The next step is to write your content of about 300-500 words about the same article topic you have chosen. Great and quality contents can make your articles get published in a blog where you never imagine. While writing, you need to be explanatory enough for anybody to understand as your article is open to numerous audiences scattered in space and time.
- Publish & Promote: You need to submit your articles to great directories that publish articles within 2-3 days after submission. These directories will further enhance accessibility to your articles when people log in. Publishing your article is easier compared to promoting your articles. There are numerous ways you can use in promoting your articles online and this can be categorised into two which are:
- Paid advertising
- Free advertising
As we have some forums and article directories that accept free publishing likewise we have paid versions. You can decide which category to go for based on your earnings.
I have some article directories to recommend here for you
Hubslides as an example has a user-friendly interface and features that you can use to monitor your articles’ performance like number of views. Also it has another great feature called forums where you can meet with experts in different fields or professions and also interact.
Remember: Never forget to add your promotional URL and author resource box to every article you publish on any article directories mentioned above as it will help you to get backlinks.
